Those attending Modi's fast culprit of riots

Lucknow: A prominent Shia cleric on Monday termed all those, including Muslims, who attended the three-day fast by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, as "gunahgaar" (culprit) of riots.

"All those attending the fast with Modi are equally culprit of Gujarat riots. We will observe a fast on the coming Friday to save the country from such people," Jawwad told reporters here.

Jawwad also compared Modi with Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab.

"Will the people of the country forgive Kasab and Afzal Guru if they observe the fast," Jawwad said adding Modi could not be forgiven.

He said his "deeds have also put a blot on Hindutva".
